Thank you to every person who has supported the marching band program during band camp! Whether you volunteered for 1 hour or volunteered every day, it made a huge impact! Thank you!!!

Look for upcoming volunteer opportunities available throughout the regular season with chaperoning, helping with uniforms, helping with pit crew, helping serve refreshments during games, and more.

We hope to see you at our Upbeat Club Meeting on August 18 where you can learn more about the Lakota West Band programs and hear directly from our Directors with how things stand and where things are headed.
